Do you see what I see????
That's what I saw yesterday afternoon when I went to check on my little pots of dirt...if you look really close, you can see one - yes! - One little sproutlet! An itsy bitsy, teeny weeny Green Zebra Tomato Plant!
And the shocking thing - to me anyway - is that it was a seed in an envelope 6 days earlier! AND, it was a packet of seeds I had purchased LAST year, but never opened!
I always say, I usually do pretty good with outdoor plants, but houseplants I destroy nearly as soon as they arrive, so I always get nervous when I try to start seeds indoors. Will my black houseplant thumb mistake these "outdoor" sprouts for its victims? I hope not...I have a lot of little pots of dirt hanging around!
But 24 four hours later - exactly one week from planting half of my seeds - I came home to this....
Front row is Morning Sun - they are taking the lead! I can't believe they grew this fast in one day - I must have missed them yesterday.
Here's some new friends for Green Zebra...Steve will be happy. Looks like his Fox Cherry tomatoes are going strong!
A couple other tomatoes are starting to peep out, too, but I couldn't get a good enough shot.
Hard to see, but there are two little greenish sprouts coming up, one in each of these two pots. Those are broccoli....that I planted Sunday. Four days ago!
I hope that's a good sign!
I can breathe a little sigh of relief now that some of the seeds have germinated. I always have that fear that I'll plant all these seeds and nothing will grow.
Now if I can just keep the cats away...
